It's mostly the backend code that is much cleaner in rewrite. As such, it
is much easier to add/extend functionality, which can be useful with the
changes that happen to wikidata - after all, the entire infrastructure is
still somewhat under development.
Although trunk development will not stop soon, I would suggest to start new
wikidata bots using rewrite, for the reasons above.
I am also concerned about the pace of development of the Rewrite branch.
From another thread, I have noticed about changes to
editEntity() to create
This is a change to the *wikidata api*. As an end-user of pywikipedia -
trunk or rewrite - you should not notice these changes. As such, I am not
sure why you connect this to 'the pace of development of the Rewrite

The reason is python2, at least for me :)
Could you elaborate on that? Unless you are running an ancient version of
python2 (<= 2.5), there should not be any problems running rewrite.
